|Great intro, Great names, for obviously Great guys!
My name is Imani; when I met my Mom, I was already 8 months old, and had been named Faith by my breeder. Mom said it just didn't "feel right" so she and my human sister Kim, who have a fascination with foreign languages, did some research, and found that "Imani" is translated as "Faith" and seemed like a perfect "fit" for me. Imani is the fifth day of Quanzaa, the African American celebration, that particular day focuses on Faith. So, there you have it.
My baby sister's name is Frankie, which she was named by the breeder, and Mom was asked not to change it as it had a special significance to her registered name. Her nickname at home is Tater, because when she came to live with us at 9 weeks old, (Last September 19), she wanted nothing more than to get up on the couch and nap, but she was way to small to get up there on her own. Mom laughed, and said Frankie was her "first official Couch Potato" since I never wanted to sleep there. From there, Dad said she was too little to be a couch potato, so she must be a Tater Tot, and that is what he called her until she was big enough to get on the couch. To this day, she is Tater to Mom and Dad. Frankie is my half sister- we share a doggie mom.
My baby brother's name is Jesse. When he came to us this past May, he was named Meiko, but he had been seriously beaten and starved, and Mom wanted to give him a new start in life, which would require a brand new name. So she made a list of names, and Dad and Kim didn't really like any of them. So when Mom and Dad finally went to pick him up, Mom met him, and asked him if he would like to be called Jesse from now on, and he licked her hand. So now Dad has his "Frank & Jesse" after the James brothers (Dad is an old western fanatic) and Mom said she just knew Jesse and Frankie were going to get into more trouble together than either of them ever would alone. Jesse is a nice strong name, and I think has helped my adopted baby brother become the "man" he is today. He is very attached to Frankie, and actually alerts Mom to Frankie's seizures up to a full day in advance. When Frankie isn't feeling well, Jesse has been known to find a blanket and drag it in his mouth to cover her up while she sleeps.
So, thats where our names came from, and I am pleased to meet all of you!
